Natalie's Review

Chalone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006, Monterey County, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: A large region, Monterey is generally regarded as a cooler climate AVA thanks to the moderating ocean breezes from Monterey Bay. However, the organic grapes for this well-crafted Cab are sourced from the warmer southern end of the county furthest from this ocean influence. A great value, this approachable Cab has juicy blackberry and cherry flavors as well as notes of vanilla oak all balanced by a focused seam of acidity and suave tannins. My note: Spicy oak integrates beautifully with fleshy ripe notes of blackberries, game, dark spices, prunes and cassis. A consistent producer of well-structured and balanced Cabernets. 104190 13.85% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 90/100. January 17, 2009  Full Review
